As I read through the recipe I noticed two ingredients that are usually in cookies were missing... salt and baking soda. I added 1/4 tsp. salt and 1 tsp. baking soda. The cookies were wonderful! They have a soft tender texture not to mention they make your house smell awesome! I also reduced the amount of white chocolate chips but that was mainly for personal preference. I thought baking them at a lower temperature for a little longer worked very well for this particular cookie. I will be adding this recipe to my "favorite cookie collection"! YUMMY! Read More

My husband asked me to never make these cookies again! I sent him to work with a dozen of these and he ate every single one! My husband does not care for sweets and he said that this was his favorite cookie. Anyway.. he ended up asking me to make more for him. Great recipe. Read More

Turned out well by taking another viewer's suggestion. Used 1/2 c. butter & 1/2 c. Crisco increased vanilla to 1 t. and decreased almond extract to 1/4 t. Read More

I also used the 1/2 butter 1/2 crisco and increased the amount of vanilla. This really helped with having a fluffier rounder cookie as opposed to a flat cookie. I took them to work and was asked all day how I got them so fluffy! Read More

So....this recipe says it makes 12 (one dozen) I wanted to make 3 dozen so I tripled the recipe. We wound up with way more than expected at over 6 dozen but well worth it cause these cookies are delicious!! Plus they were to send to my mom now I have plenty left for myself! Read More
